Greatness And Goodness

You live in golden tomorrow;
You are divinely great.
He lived in golden yesterday;
He was divinely great.
I live in golden today;
But I am not divinely great.
Because my Pilot Supreme tells me:
Greatness is not satisfaction;
Goodness is not only satisfaction
But perfection itself.
